On 22 August, supermarket chain Jumbo announced a social plan affecting 500 to 600 employees. Reason for the redundancies is the integration of Jumbo and the C1000 chain, which was taken over by Jumbo.

Job losses will mainly take place at the head offices of Jumbo and C1000. The number of employees will be reduced from 1,300 to around 700.
